Thank you for all your responses.
Wouldn't your management know what you can afford? I do not know what country you are based in but a few points.
Modern vs classic is not necessarily a cost issue. If your management doesn't know this, I am guessing this is not a first world type of atmosphere and thus you could just paste a vanity label on any piece of crap and be approved.
If you are so concerned about what they perceive regarding your clothes, then why solicit opinions in this forum?
Classic style indeed implies that it is proper and should be well received across various eras.
In some countries, let's use the USA, bigtime management would prefer conservative suit and tie versus very modern tailoring and flashy accessories. They want you to blend in, be in the company line, not stand out, etc.
'a very large fortune 50 company' is an oxymoron.
Gorecki, it depends on where you are located and which SF members are around.
I personally would not but I would just disregard your opinions.
Mostly because the pics in the OP are not that great that you can really see quality. The basic shape, yes.
Also, you should post these superior coats since you would save the OP a few quid.
I am not a huge fan of Brioni but Boss and Armani have hardly shown me better, overall.
And while I am open minded about it, I would bet the workmanship of the first is surely better if I had to bet blindly on any comparable pieces.
Probably the fabric as well but that might go by line though I do not recall any Armani overcoats in detail.
